Risks related to open water diving and their prevention
OBORNÁ, Veronika
This bachelor's thesis focuses on the risks associated with open water diving and their prevention. Three objectives were determined to elaborate this thesis. The first objective was to find out what kind of knowledge professional and recreational divers have about the risks related to open water diving. The second objective was to examine what knowledge divers have about preventive measures related to open water diving. Last but not least, the third objective was to determine what barriers regarding the open water diving are perceived by divers. The bachelor's thesis consists of a theoretical and a practical part. The theoretical part is divided into chapters and subchapters describing the history of diving, fundamental diving equipment, basics of physics for divers and physiology related to diving. The heoretical part also describes the most common injuries and diseases occurring during diving, proper first aid as a reaction to them as well as their treatment. Finally, a part of the theory is devoted to the prevention of undesirable situations during open water diving. In the practical part of this thesis a qualitative research was applied. Data collection was conducted through semi-structured interviews. The research sample consisted of ten divers of different ages and different lengths of experience. Five informants were professional divers and five informants were recreational divers. The data obtained from the interviews were processed into four categories, which were further subdivided into subcategories. Using the qualitative research, it was found out that both professional and recreational divers have the necessary knowledge regarding the risks associated with open water diving. Despite essential knowledge and efforts to follow preventive measures, all but one informant experienced a crisis situation during a practice dive, which always turned out well due to proper theoretical preparation for these risk situations. All informants are aware that the biggest risk is the diver himself and overestimation of his own abilities. Regarding the knowledge of preventive measures related to the open water diving, there were differences between the knowledge of professional and recreational divers. All informants had the necessary awareness of the discussed topic, however it was clear that professional divers were more familiar with this issue. All informants were knowledgeable about the necessity of diving training, proper diving equipment, preventive measures and first aid procedures including cardiopulmonary resuscitation in case of an emergency situation. Moreover, it has been found out that divers perceive certain obstacles when diving in open water. In addition to poor health or psychological conditions being a barrier to diving, informants also determined low quality natural conditions as a barrier too. Deteriorated natural conditions were seen as a barrier mostly by recreational divers, whereas professional divers dive all year round and in all kinds of conditions. From the results of the research, it was ascertained that divers have sufficient knowledge of the risks associated with open water diving. Furthermore, informants have sufficient knowledge of preventive measures, which enables them to correctly assess certain situations. The fact that the informants consider the deteriorated natural conditions as a barrier to open water diving indicates that they are concerned about the prevention of risks associated with open water diving. This thesis highlights the importance of knowledge of the risks associated with open water diving and their prevention. The results of this bachelor's thesis can be used to supplement the knowledge of some divers, as a teaching material for novice divers or for health professionals who want to be aware of diving-related diseases and acute conditions related to diving itself.

Year-round project for preschool children - Water changes
KODÝTEK, Miroslav
The bachelor thesis deals with the creation and implementation of a year-round project for preschool children. The project focuses on water transformation during the year. Water becomes known to children through environmental education. The theoretical part explains the term environmental education in the context of preschool education. By defining examples of the relationships between the components of living and inanimate nature, the work deals in detail with information on the topic of water, its various forms, changes and uses. The practical part contains suggestions of suitable activities and activities used to understand the relationship to nature, especially water during the ten thematic weeks, when each month in a given school year children discuss one of the thematic weeks (solid state of water, liquid state of water, gaseous state of water, utility water, waste water, water origin, water cycle). During the weeks, the children gained basic knowledge about nature, especially about water, and their positive attitude towards nature in their surroundings was deepened. The children understood that there would be no life without water.

Freshwater world - educational program for environmental education in preschool education
The topic of this bachelor's thesis is an environmental program about a freshwater world. The goal is to establish and support a positive relationship towards surrounding nature and environment in preschool children. Also the goal is to create activities, that connect several areas of an early childhood education curriculum, through the topic of the freshwater world. Each theme will present a detailed methodical description and possible other related materials. The theoretical part introduces the freshwater world in general, animals and plants living in it. It also presents the evolution of an amphibian (a frog) and focuses on the water circulation system in the nature. The practical part introduces a one week project, that can be used as a methodical material for teachers, not only in the early childhood education facilities. The bachelor's thesis presents a draft of an environmental teaching program for kindergartens. This program has been tested with preschool children and was rated positively by respondents. The evaluation of tested activities also is a part of this thesis.
Risks associated with diving and their prevention
The topic of this bachelor thesis is called: "Risks related to diving and their prevention." The theoretical part is mainly focused on health risks which arise during scuba diving and follow-up prevention of the health risks. Furthermore, the following topics are mentioned in the theoretical part: a history of diving, biophysical concepts, and necessary equipment. Because of this topic, it was important to include chapters about first aid, treatment and medical fitness for diving. A reduction of health risks was chosen as the main objective in the practical part. There were created 3 research questions. 1. What is the training of divers? 2. What is currently the prevention of health damage during diving? 3. How can we reduce the risk of health damage? The qualitative research measurements were used for the creation of the research part of this bachelor thesis. A semi-structured interview containing 24 questions was created to get the data. There were 6 divers chosen for the interviews, 3 professional divers and 3 hobby divers. According to the results, it was found that there is a fundamental difference in the knowledge of the divers about this topic. Very often the risks are caused by insufficient preparedness and knowledge of the diver, not handling of the panic and stress, and a wrong reaction. Disobeying of precautions and principles often contributes to that. The results of this bachelor thesis may be helpful in completing education and information of divers, but also medical staff.
